In Normal mode, the Filter output determines the pulse width on DPWM A. DPWM B fits into the rest of the switching period, with a dead time separating it from the DPWM A on-time. It is useful for buck topologies, among others. Here is a drawing of the Normal Mode waveforms:
Cycle adjust A can be used to adjust pulse widths on individual phases of a multi-phase system. This can be used for functions like current balancing. The Adaptive Sample Triggers can be used to sample in the middle of the on-time (for an average output), or at the end of the on-time (to minimize phase delay) The Adaptive Sample Register provides an offset from the center of the on-time. This can compensate for external delays, such as MOSFET and gate driver turn on times.
Blanking A-Begin and Blanking A-End can be used to blank out noise from the MOSFET turn on at the beginning of the period (DPWMA rising edge). Blanking B could be used at the turn off time of DPWMB. The other edges are dynamic, so blanking is more difficult.
Cycle Adjust B has no effect in Normal Mode.
